I'm not sure, but looking at the patch, it /does/ seem like it tries
to override the user settings, which IMO should not happen. If that is
indeed the case, I do not support this patch either.

@Giuseppe: About the failing test, that particular test seems to have
some weird timing problems. I'm assuming it is probably a fault in the
perl server. It randomly fails for me too. However, if you run make
check again, chances are the test will pass. :)
